It’s always exciting to be introduced to something for the first time since we know that it will only happen once in our lives. And no matter how much better life becomes later on, the flurry of emotions that accompanies a first encounter is so strong that it lingers with us for the rest of our lives. Because of this, it’s a breath of fresh air to see a puzzled baby make their first discoveries and discover the world around them. Because it serves as a constant reminder of how amazing life is, even though we take it for granted sometimes.
We feel that we must constantly strive to maintain that childlike sense of wonder alive inside ourselves. Here are some photographs that will serve as a reminder of how valuable the seemingly little things in life can be.
